DJ Feinberg (San Diego, CA) – Gran Reserva

Steven Feinberg’s versatility and pan-global DJ style reflect more than two decades spent researching and performing music around the world. Beginning with a high school radio show in Dallas, Texas, and on college radio at Wake Forest University, his love of music and the art of DJing have led to numerous residencies and performances around his current home in North Carolina and to destinations including London, Ibiza, Playa Del Carmen, New Orleans, Miami, and Dallas.

He has shared the booth with a number of renowned musicians, producers, and DJ’s including Kenny Dope, Mark Farina, Kevin Saunderson, Colette, Justin Martin, Terry Hunter, Jojo Flores, Roy Davis Jr., Terrence Parker, Sonny Fodera, Chuck Love, Midnight Conspiracy, Nickodemus, Halo, Julius the Mad Thinker, Todd Terry, Boddhi Satva, Lars Behrenroth, Sabo, Stacey Kidd, Sunshine Jones (Dubtribe), Jask, and many more. Over the years, he has played extensively around the Triangle, including shows at Solas, Mosaic, Babylon, Red Hat Amphitheater, Lincoln Theatre, Helios, Red Room, Spice Street, Vortex, Talulla’s, Mirage, Shaba Shabu, the Nasher Museum, Cafe Driade, Bay 7, Oasis, Casbah, Duke University, UNC, and many more. True to his love of exploring new sounds and artistic expression, his performances are often accompanied by live musicians, belly dancers, acrobats, performance painters, fire dancers, and capoeiristas.

A classically-trained musician, Steven began his musical career with the Texas State Choir and St. Mark’s Choir, performing around the Midwest and across Europe at locations including Notre Dame Cathedral (Paris), Mont San-Michel (Normandy) and St. Paul’s Cathedral (London). While earning his BA at Wake Forest University, he sang alongside poet Maya Angelou during the musical premier of her presidential inaugural poem, “On The Pulse of Morning.” His graduate studies led to in-depth research in ethnomusicology and music history at Duke and Oxford Universities and to spend extended amounts of time traveling and studying in and around Barcelona and Ibiza. Steven’s exposure to so many diverse music genres contribute to his unique DJ style, which can include funk, samba, jazz, hip hop, nu disco, salsa, reggae, downtempo, merengue, dancehall, Afrobeat, and Arabic, as well as a wide variety of house and other electronic genres. In addition to acting as owner/Resident DJ at Mosaic Lounge, Steven hosts a variety of events, including Discoteque (Mosaic), We All Love House (Mosaic), Sultry (Mosaic), Passport (Mosaic), and the Soviet Block Party (Mosaic). He also has acted as Co-Planner and/or Resident DJ at several annual festivals and conferences, including Duke University’s Across The Threshold conference series, the Mosaic Spring and Fall Music Festivals, the “Mosaic in Miami” Events at Miami WMC, and the Mi Casa Music Holiday in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
